The Community Shares Booster Programme is now open. This £3 million programme is delivered by the Community Shares Unit and funded by Power to Change. It aims to:
- Make equity investments of up to £100,000 to match what societies can raise through community shares.
- Provide development grants of up to £10,000 to help societies get investment ready and meet standards of good practice.
The Community Shares Booster Programme will support societies that can demonstrate high levels of community impact, innovation and engagement. Match funding will be in the form of equity held on equal terms with other community shareholders. The first development grants will be awarded from early 2018 as part of this five year programme.
